She is a Beast

Our very own Christina Rosso-Schneider has her first book releasing this spring! She is a Beast is an illustrated collection of feminist fairy tales. Some are re-imaginings of the classic tales we know, such as Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella, while others are completely original. This collection is about women reclaiming their stories and finding agency by embracing their beastly natures and adopting monstrous appetites deemed inappropriate by society. In their wildness they find freedom. She is a Beast will be released by APEP Publications on Saturday, May 2nd at A Novel Idea on Passyunk.

Order From Us

Support Local



Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support independent bookstores and give back to the book community.

As more people buy their books online, we wanted to create an easy, convenient way to get your books and still support local bookstores. By design, we give away about 75% of our profit margin to the stores, publications, and people that make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books!


A Novel Idea earns a small percentage of these sales, ordering direct is still the best way to support us. But, if you are from out of town and want to support indie bookshops this is the place for you!
